Where to Park

Parking is available for graduates and their guests at the Alliant Energy Center. Parking is free for the Edgewood College Commencement ceremony.

Seating at the Ceremony 

Tickets are not required for students or guests, and there is no limit to the number of guests who may attend. Designated seating for the elderly and for persons with disabilities is available. Accessible seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis; due to limited space, we request that only one non-disabled person sit with each person with a disability in the seating area designated for these guests.

Length of Ceremony

The Commencement Ceremony lasts approximately an hour and a half.


Professional photographers will take individual photographs of graduates as they receive their diploma folders and as they leave the platform. Instructions for receiving these photographs will be available the day of commencement.
